What are the different temperaments in nature v. nurture?
November 16, 2007 1:35AM
temperaments are a person's characteristic emotional reactivity and intensity. Temperament has been proven to be effected by nature and nurture. Nature is what will be the biggest influence on temperament, and your nature temperament will stay with you the rest of your life (your temperament does not change). The nurture of family has more of an effect on bigger more important issues like politics and religion, while peer nurture has a larger effect on the day to day opinions on things such as what movie to watch, what clothes to wear etc. I hope I have answered your question, if not, try re-wording it.
